9780711213616: Exploring World Art

This colorful introduction to world art brings together seemingly unrelated objects--such as an Aztec calendar stone and a Flemish still life--to help children make connections between the world of art and their own lives. The art is divided into chapters on Time and Space, Other Worlds, Daily Life, History and Myth, and the World of Nature. Ancient Egyptian mummies accompany a native Alaskan mask to illustrate how various cultures have expressed belief in spirits and the afterlife, while an early American quilt and a Polynesian artifact both serve as artistic representations of daily life. An ideal resource for educators and parents, Exploring World Art will help children think about art and its various roles in society.

About the Author:

Andrea Belloli is an author and editor, and the creator of Make Your Own Museum, an activity kit for children.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-This interesting and attractive title looks at the connections between humankind's "worries, hopes, fears, and plans" throughout history and the art/art objects that sprang from them. Arranged into five broad sections ("Time and Space," "Other Worlds," "Daily Life," "History and Myth," and "World of Nature"), each artifact is accompanied by a full-color photograph or reproduction. Belloli describes how such objects as an Aztec calendar stone, a Dutch still-life painting, or an Egyptian coffin were made, their meaning and purpose within their culture, and gives other historical and background information. Among the formats introduced are portraits, sculptures, paintings, maps, calendars, masks, quilts, and rock forms. When a pattern evolves, Belloli explains how it came to be. Carvings on objects, stone forms, and other interesting markings are explained as well. Various works of fine art from the masters are discussed when applicable. The text surrounds the artwork without creating a busy format; the layout is visually attractive. A double-paged map pinpoints the places of origin for the various objects and a time line shows when they were developed. A worthwhile addition for browsers and report writers.
